Added PRIDE’S CHILDREN – Chapter 14, Scene 9

This week’s post is Chapter 14, Scene 9 (1.14.9).

Otto Bock WalkOn Reaction AFOs (ankle-foot-orthoses) are here and I’m picking them up tomorrow! I might walk again! ‘Tis biblical!

It is a little crazy – so I’m posting early because the next few days will be very packed. Sorry if I confuse anyone.

And here is this week’s quote (thanks, Quozio.com):

Additional beta readers welcome – contact me if you’d like to participate (and get to read things earlier). In the middle of Chapter 17 in the revision; Book 1 has 20 chapters: we’re in the final stretch, and the pace is accelerating.

Typo reports, etc., extremely welcome! You people aren’t working hard enough. Caught another one today, posting this – courtesy WordPress – one fewer to catch later.

Added PRIDE’S CHILDREN – Chapter 14, Scene 8

This week’s post is Chapter 14, Scene 8 (1.14.8).

ETA: links corrected for Chapter 14, scene 8. Note to self: don’t post when you’re tired!

Otto Bock WalkOn Reaction AFOs (ankle-foot-orthoses) have either been ordered or are very close to being ordered – paperwork in progress!

Worked on Holly’s tiny house – need to put some pictures up. They’re working on the roof! I helped with a tiny bit of the siding – it took longer to work a piece of siding around a window frame than to nail on 10 pieces of siding. It is looking very house-like. It would have helped to have my AFOs already – I hate being unsteady and getting tired when standing.

Added PRIDE’S CHILDREN – Chapter 14, Scene 7

This week’s post is Chapter 14, Scene 7 (1.14.7).

The rehab guy was right – the orthoses make it very much easier for me to walk; seeing my doctor Thursday to get them prescribed. Otto Bock WalkOn Reaction AFOs (ankle-foot-orthoses) – very high tech carbon fiber. Take some of the energy of walking, use it to push off. I strapped them on and felt like the guy in the Bible Jesus said, ‘Get up and walk,’ to. The rehab guy said ‘hiking’ – I’d be happy to walk comfortably around the block. Keep fingers crossed.

It is hot in NJ – but I have been weeding a bit – everything looks lovely. We got heavy rain tonight – so it’s all nicely watered. I love when it does that.

Added PRIDE’S CHILDREN – Chapter 14, Scene 6

This week’s post is Chapter 14, Scene 6 (1.14.6).

Rehab guy had great stuff – I’ll blog about it when I get further along the path, so – hope!

Working, conceptually, with site changes – finding it a bit trickier than I expected, but that’s the perfectionist in me. I will stay here for now – I have no intention of doing anything to start other than straight Amazon – one thing at a time.

NJ is HOT – the chinchilla’s AC is working overtime – she hates the noise, and you can’t explain to a chinchilla.

Pride’s Children: Great Website and Blog Redesign Project

If you are a new visitor, an occasional visitor, or one of my wonderful regulars, I crave your indulgence.

Why is my indulgence being craved? (craven?) now?

I’m getting very close to the end of my real (secret and nefarious) purpose for this blog/site: inducing you to try (if you haven’t already drunk the Koolaid) Pride’s Children, in the hopes that you will find it – and my other fiction offerings – something you simply can’t do without. This eventually means Continue reading

Added PRIDE’S CHILDREN – Chapter 14, Scene 5

This week’s post is Chapter 14, Scene 5 (1.14.5).

Sad to say, the  external stimulation device for the calf muscles – and walking – didn’t work. At all. Am pouting. Praying to your favorite deities didn’t work. Sigh – I went in with a positive attitude, so it wasn’t me. We have an appointment with a rehab guy next week – he seemed very positive. Crossing fingers and praying again.

Writing is back on track – I have to stay ahead of you people! There were some knots to work out – they are worked out.

It is getting hot in NJ – the last bike ride was not a long one due to the oppressive nature of Mother Nature, but I still love my mobility.
